The Federal Government plans to introduce changes to Medicare rebates for a range of GP services.
If you are receiving Chronic Disease Management services, a Medicare benefit will only be able to be claimed for the same patient on the same day for:
A General Practitioner cannot claim a Medicare benefit for a consultation if they are also claiming a Chronic Disease Management service (for the creation of a new care plan or for a review of an existing care plan) on the same day.
This measure will affect General Practitioners providing Chronic Disease Management services and patients with a chronic medical condition or complex care needs.
If your consultation is part of your Care Plan / chronic disease management ( eg. diabetes, asthma ) and you also have another unrelated issue you wish your GP to treat, from 1st November you will not be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate for both issues !
So, whereas in the past your GP may have bulkbilled you for these services, the change will mean that this is unable to continue and you will have an additional out of pocket expense.
You will of course still receive the same high quality care from your GP.
We would suggest you contact your local parliamentarian and register your complaint.
